Nice to meet you! 👋🏽

My name is Lucas Adelino, and I’m an educator with a passion for language and technology.

I first started college as an undergrad in Computer Science at the Federal University of Pernambuco. I deeply enjoyed the program, but at the time, my love for writing led me to change majors Communication/Journalism. During my undergrad, I worked as a PR intern at several institutions in my hometown of Recife. I graduated with a bachelor’s in Journalism in 2017.

In that same year, I was admitted into Auburn University as a master’s student in Adult Education. After my first semester, I started working as a graduate assistant at Auburn’s University Writing initiative. My experiences at Auburn were incredibly impactful: I got to learn the theory and practice of teaching, collaborate with my mentors in exciting research projects, and present at national conferences.

During my master’s, I took a few linguistics courses while pursuing an English Language Teaching certificate. These were the most inspiring courses I took in my whole time at Auburn, and it wasn’t long before I knew I had to continue my studies in Linguistics.

After graduating from Auburn in 2020, I worked for two semesters as a Portuguese language tutor at the Academic Support Program for Student Athletes at UNC-Chapel Hill. This experience allowed me to put in practice many of the concepts I had learned about in my adult education and linguistics courses.

I am now a Linguistics graduate student at UNC. To support my UNC grad school application in 2021, I completed several projects, which you can check out in the Projects section of this site. Feel free to follow me on Twitter and GitHub for updates!

When I’m not working, you can likely find me hanging out with my cat Bo, watching TV with my wife, gaming, or cooking.
